I was going to deem this "socks Friday," in which I dramatically cast aside traditional legwear in favor of, well, socks. But it was too cold for this concept, so I wore tights. :P
This was a J.Crew oxford I semi-drooled over, back in October of last year (see J.Crack update). It looked too masculine to me...but now I see 'Crew has put out new versions:
J.Crew Camden leather brogues in Light Ginger, Nutmeg and Black
Aha! Much better. The key with this kind of shoe is to make it look pretty, and the perforated designs and delicate shades do just that. (There's a two-tone one up as well that to me looks fug, but is likely much better in person.)
I really like the black ones. Nutmeg looks beautiful, but how useful would it be? Would it show dirt and scuffs quickly? Light Ginger is out of the question for me, for that reason. I just got around to polishing my Cole Haans the other day...I am laaaaazy.
These are Cydwoq prices, but it's not the price that would make me decide for or against. I'm not a shoe whore--a shampoo whore, for sure; something of a stocking whore, definitely into skirts...a skirt can make an outfit almost to the same degree as a dress, while being more versatile and cheaper. Shoes, I don't actually want to own too many of. So the ones I do want, have to be right.
